    Default Guide: Problems with Refresh / Deleting Tracks and Album Art from Music Library

    There are times when refreshing the Music Player library either won't complete (eg: after you've dropped the phone popping out the battery in the middle of a refresh .. or is that just me?) or deleted tracks and album art won't disappear from the Music library after a refresh.

    These problems are often down to corruption of the library and the only thing to do is to delete the library files and start over. Even a hard reset of the phone won't fix this as the files are stored on the card / mass memory.


    To delete the library files:

    - Ensure you can see hidden files in Windows Explorer:

    Windows Explorer .. Tools .. Folder Options .. View

    Select "Show hidden files and folders"

    - Connect the phone to your PC using the USB cable in "Data transfer" mode

    - Find and rename (or delete if you're really brave) files with names like:

    E:\private\101FFC31\mpxv1.mpd
    E:\private\101FFC31\pcv5.mpd
    E:\private\101ffca9\harvesterdb.dat

    (assuming the phone's mass memory / card has been connected as E

    Note that the folder names may be different and the files may have prefixes - eg: mpxv1.mpd could be called abcmpxv1.mpd. Basically, you need to search under the Private folder for any files that look similar.

    If you rename files - eg: by adding a ".o" to the end of the name - instead of deleting them, you can always just change the name back if you find you need those files back.

    - Refresh the Music Player library

    This will take longer than normal as it's a complete refresh, but it should now work.

    Tried this without any success.

    Found:
    E:\private\101ffca9\harvesterdb.dat

    No sign of anything like:
    E:\private\101FFC31\mpxv1.mpd
    E:\private\101FFC31\pcv5.mpd

    Ran the "refresh library" which created a new harvesterdb.dat ok - took about 10secs for 500 songs - but the resulting library was identically incorrect to how it had been before.

    I found a way to format memory card in the file explorer that comes with the phone, it does delete EVERYTHING from your memory card, inc software etc, but also sorts the phantom tracks out, so the phone music player database is reset too.

    I thought the back cover is really really hard to open?

    I've had deleted the files (am I brave enough? lol)
    But now I prefer to scan my mmc with pc (right click on mmc --> properties --> tools --> scan disc). If necessary I defragment it.
